In today’s sweep of the internet sales-o-sphere, we uncovered lots of thoughtful, last-minute Mother’s Day gifts — including a tension-busting foot massager, a comfy pair of Crocs, even an inviting hammock (though, fair warning: Some items likely won’t arrive until after May 9, but better late than never).

The foot massagers from Belmint are longtime Strategist best sellers, and this half-off one is a particularly sweet deal for moms who wants to put their feet up.

Or she can make the most of lazy days this summer with an easy-to-assemble checkered hammock that’s designed to fit two people.

For a limited time, Anthropologie is taking an additional 25 percent off already-on-sale items, like this dainty pair of gold hoops from Loeffler Randall.

A stylish — and sturdy — set of metal patio furniture, so you can enjoy your morning coffee or a nightcap with friends outdoors.

For the mom who loves to cook, scoop up this professional-grade pasta pot and serving set from the same brand that makes some of our favorite flatware.

This Kindle Paperwhite helped Strategist editor Maxine Builder read more frequently, especially during self-isolation. “Unlike my phone screen or even laptop, the Kindle screen has no glare, which is surprisingly relaxing when I’m reading in my bed before falling asleep,” she says.

If your mom’s always ready for her close-up, we think she’ll find this light-bulb-lined mirror a particularly useful addition to her glam routine.

We really don’t think you’ll find a shoe more comfortable and (surprisingly) stylish than a classic pair of white Crocs.

A nice, striped one-piece swimsuit from Madewell, if she’s got a long-awaited tropical getaway coming up. And it’ll pair nicely with …

… this breezy sarong in a cheerful floral pattern.

We found lots of makeup on sale at Nordstrom Rack — like this highly pigmented matte lip pencil that shouldn’t transfer onto your face mask.

This deeply discounted Smashbox palette has a nice array of shimmering neutrals that could double as eye shadow and highlighter.

For the mom who’s always on the go, this spacious backpack has room to hold both bigger essentials, like a laptop, and pockets to organize smaller items as well.

And though it might seem a bit early in the season, you’ll be glad you bought a new air conditioner before the first summer heat wave. And this one can be controlled via smartphone app.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels.
